Inside tBTC, the Bitcoin-backed ERC-20 token that could go live in March

Quick Take

  • tBTC – an Ethereum-based token backed by and pegged to Bitcoin – has entered into a code freeze and gone into audit; the team is now eyeing a v1 mainnet release in March
  • According to project lead Matt Luongo, tBTC’s redemption feature will allow it to garner more interests from bitcoiners than synthetic versions of bitcoin like WBTC
  • The team has plans to integrate with lending platforms like Compound immediately after launch, but low liquidity could potentially prevent tBTC from becoming a collateral option in the near future.
